A male motorist is dead and a female passenger is injured after a car crashed into a house yesterday in Ottumwa.

The Ottumwa Police Department says the preliminary investigation indicates a 2007 BMW X5 passenger car was traveling at a high rate of speed when it lost control, rolled through an intersection, and struck a residence on East Williams Street.

The driver, 44-year-old Jason Tobeck, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Twenty-one-year-old Brianna McConnell was a passenger in the vehicle. She was transported to the hospital and is reportedly in stable condition.

No one in the home was injured. The accident remains under investigation.
